§ 36. Mr. Simon Hughes
asked the Paymaster General if he will make a statement on regional variations in the numbers of self-employed.
§ Mr. Trippier
Estimates of the numbers self-employed in each region are recorded on page 40 of the supplement published with the February editionEmployment Gazette, a copy of which is in the Library. In each region there were more self-employed in 1985, the latest year for which firm estimates are available, than in 1979.
